We have also rented from Craig at Packlight for years. Great service and he also rents chairs, umbrellas & coolers.

But does he has his own phones or getting them from Sharon?

Since Smart phones, we have always rented a SIM from Sharon.
I will probably buy from UTS when we arrive. Do you just call them to top off if you run out of time?
We really don't use the phone much--mostly for reservations and a quick check home.
Or if my credit card company decides to send me an urgent message!!!! I almost forgot--- changing airline reservations

Maybe I'm very low maintenance but I have to do nothing to be able to make calls home from my own cell...and receive them (or return the call) when on wifi at SBR. I just inform everyone to use email instead of text and there is no issue.

I would think it overkill to rent a phone or get a sim just for reservations (use Skype) and on road calls....

Just a simple person I guess.

Lurker: Here is the link to top up your SIM card. It will give you an expiration date when you enter your phone #. http://utschippie.com/expirationdate.aspx

Not sure if it's just me, but t that link hasn't worked in ages.

I bought a super cheap dual SIM (unlocked) phone on Amazon, and then a Chippie (UTS) SIM card. I can make local calls and have my very own SXM phone number! Love it!

I believe that he has his own phones.

The UTS store by IZI was closed the last time I went there. Possibly for good.
